Immunotherapy, which trains the immune system to attack cancer, has produced remarkable results in treating some cancers. But it doesn’t work for everyone, and its results can vary.That’s why our researchers are conducting clinical trials that combine immunotherapy with standard chemotherapies, antibody-based treatments and even other immunotherapy drugs. Here’s how our experts are using these combination treatments for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. #endcancer
